Yaadein yaad aati hain..

It seems like only yesterday when he was here. Now he's half a world away. I keep thinking he's going to pop out of the kitchen, or I'll suddenly see him in the hall watching TV. But nope, dad left last week. Suddenly he's back to being a voice on the phone. I know I'll see him again in 2 months (I'll be going to India :-D), but well, as usual I can't really help how I feel right now. I know mom feels lonely without him around, but she doesn't really say anything. Again, we knew this was the plan all along.

He was here for about 2 months but I keep recollecting one moment in particular. One night he was putting Snuggles to sleep and he started singing "Bade achche lagthe hein". I, lying down in the same room had an urge to join in and so we both sang together to the baby. The whole thing was almost surreal..

Its strange how moments get converted to being "memories" so soon..

Nagme hain, shikwe hain
Kisse hain, baatein hain
Baatein bhool jaati hain
Yaadein yaad aati hain..

OOo thats a touchy post Deeps. Yes, I know how you would miss your dad, but as you say, just another 2 months! Nice song and 'Bade Achche lagte hain' cant recollect which song it is but both dad and daughter singing for the baby.. so really sweet. Have a nice time!

Awww! I know how it feels. I'm so used to calling my dad everyday that I feel so empty these days since he is in US since 3rd week of December and will be back towards the 3rd week of Jan. I miss talking to him everyday.

Hi Deepti,
Many congrats on the baby. Late for the party though.

I read the baby birth blog. You certainly did scare me :--(( Although I did brace myself and read through the end. I for sure will think many times before deciding to have a baby ;--)
